Freshly Made Sketches #83 - Happy Birthday Vicki!

Hello!  Here it is Wednesday already and that means a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Today Allisa is our hostess and she brings us a fabulous sketch.  As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I needed to break out the patterned paper.  And I wanted some really pretty colors because I had a special card to make.

You see, today is Vicki Burdick's birthday!  Vicki (It's a Stamp Thing) is a one of the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge design team members and I was invited to join in on a special birthday celebration for her:

Happy Birthday Vicki!
Have a Fabulous Day!

Gotta love those funky flowers!  And isn't that patterned paper pretty?  Speaking of patterned paper, I have to say that I must be in a pretty paper lull lately.  I recently took a trip to my local scrapbook store and I surprisingly bought only a few new paper collections.  Not like me at all.  Could I have reached my saturation point?  Is it just me or are all the new paper collections looking the same?  Not that I need more paper; I really do need to use up what I have.  So maybe this is a good thing?

Now it's your turn to get creative!  Here is Allisa's fabulous sketch:
Be sure to stop by Freshly Made Sketches and check out the wonderful creations from the Clean Team!  And please come and play.  I'd love to see your take on Allisa's sketch!
